Wally Ballou visits the Indy 500 trials
This 41 minute clip has a number of musical selections, the titles of which I am only guessing at...
The clip opens with what sounds like Sinatra singing It Happened In Monterrey followed by either a long public service announcement or a short song about car wrecks.
Bob and Ray explain how to pud down a linoleum floor in a firehouse. There is an Air Force Reserve ad followed by 2 instrumentals, the first featuring whistling, the second like a marching band. The show goes to Indianapolis for Wally Ballou at the Indy 500 trials. A female singer does I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face and a novelty song about rabbits in fractured German is interrupted by a visit from Mary Magoon who makes barrels for button manufacturers. A song in German or fractured German evolves into a swing type sound and that is followed by banjo music. Bob interviews Ray but is interrupted by a phone call. The final song is It's delightful, It's delicious, It's de-lovely. There is an ad for a vitamin E ointment called My o pone and a report of Your Mule Train in Kentucky. Bob does an ad for aqua velva and there is a full episode of The Life and Loves of Linda Lovely before the clip ends.
